1993 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
I recently changed my rear main oil seal in my 1993 toyota camry le. I labeled all wires and connectors and I pulled the motor out and disconnected the trans. I put the new rear main oil seal in. I connected trans back on motor with torque converter hooked up to the fly wheel and put engine back in car. After I connected all the wires and hoses I put the axles back in and mounted tires. With car still on jack stands I started engine and tried to put car in gear, but every gear I put car in the trans would not turn the wheels. I could not feel car going into gear nor did I see the wheels move. I manully turned the wheels to see if the wheels turn in opposite directions and they did. I checked the fluid in trans and it was way to high on the dip stick like someone had over filled it about 3 quarts. But there was no fluid added to the trans at all during any operations I performed so I do not know how fluid was so high on stick. It was all fluid there was no water in it. So I let car run about 15 minutes to see if fluid would go down to normal operating level but it did not it stayed at the same level on stick.
to me it seemed like there was no movement of the fluid through the trans. I let out some of the fluid to level were it reads normal when hot on stick and I let car sit awhile and I checked fluid again it was in the same level to where I put it, no movement of fluids is taking place in trans. This trans was working great before changed out oil seal. I also checked the axles to see if they were installed all the way in trans and they seem to be since I could turned the wheels and they turned in opposite directions.
did I hook something up wrong, or maybe a solinoid on trans is not operating, or what is wrong? Any help would be appreciated.
